Using Imagery and Logos
A lot of careers have specific imagery associated with them. Firemen have fire hydrants and dalmatians, chefs have toques and cooking utensils. These items would make great imagery for a logo on a business card. But what about other careers, what would be on their business cards?
Example: Massage therapist business cards. What would go there? Massage therapists are often associated with the human form, more specifically hands and feet. In addition to the human body, they are often represented by warm earthy colors and even occasionally the tropical scene or two. After all, doesn't getting a massage feel like going on a vacation?
The example to the right shows how using your existing logo for your business card helps create a sense of consistency between the various parts of your business, and even saves you time and effort on designing.

After all, look how much it stands out from the average plain white business card. Please note, the more ink that you use when printing your business card, the more expensive your card will be to print.
